An early dramatic role, in 1898, was Oberon in A Midsummer Night's Dream and later as Rosalind in As You Like It. She appeared with the Birmingham Repertory Company, where she performed in Ibsen’s The Pillars of Society and The Wild Duck. She also appeared in pantomime and musicals, including Dick Whittington and His Cat, The Toreador, Venus by George Grossmith, My Lady Molly and The Cingalee. During World War I, she began to appear in films. Later stage roles included a role in First-Class Passengers Only (1927).[1][2] She also made a few television appearances, the last in an episode of the 1956 British series The Adventures of the Scarlet Pimpernel.
